I built a computer for a friend with a ASRock P67 Pro3 motherboard and a Rosewill Challenger case which comes with 2 USB 3.0's on the front panel.

The connectors for those 3.0's are internal... now on this motherboard I see a USB3_2_3 header, but it doesn't have pins... just little metal circles where it looks like pins should be.

Is this motherboard actually supposed to support USB3 headers?

Edit: To be a little more specific the USB 3 header is a 19-pin internal connector.

Seems it only has two rear USB 3.0 ports and the internal ports are internal USB 2.0 connectors according to the specifications. Those metal circles are solder pads where a connector used to be, as manufacturers will take higher end boards and remove certain ports, feature etc and market it as a lower end/cheaper board.
